Chill out at the Beach
Mykonos beaches truly have something for everyone.

If you like the busier beaches head to the south but if you like a bit of peace and quiet, the North is much less crowded.

Little Venice is a hub for waterfront dining and it is a superb place to watch the sun go down with a cocktail in hand. Bordered by 18th Century fishing houses that have been converted into shops and restaurants, it’s a picturesque place to relax and enjoy some delicious seafood. It attracts quite the crowd on an evening and therefore has a wonderful ambiance.
